I love building systems - early prototypes particularly welcomed. Love Python, Flask, Docker, Kube, Django and Redis. Currently building infra for big data scale and paying off tech-debt. Automate the boring bits, orchestrate all the containers! More interested in small companies than big ones.

I used to work in Government, but left in 2011 to do something more fun and socially useful. As a career changer, I have strong consultancy and facilitation skills, which helps build the thing you need, not what you think you want. They're not always the same.

Founded (and killed) strike.ly (football analytics), CloudFund (crowdfunded investment vehicle), and worked on Spacehive (world's first civic crowdfunding platform),as well as some other startups early phases. I'm also experienced in technical advisory for R&D Tax Credits and InnovateUK/H2020 grant funding.
